    I was wondering because I was thinking maybe you needed a higher wattage bulb. maybe try a 100 watt? you can always buy a table top lamp dimmer from a hardware store (I get mine from lowes- home depot doesn't have any TTLD in the stores around me) and dim it to control the wattage, or even invest in a thermostat for reptiles which can handle several lamps at once, if you ever get more leopard geckos (and, if you are anything like most of us, you probably will haha)

    i have ordered a thermostat just waiting on it the 75 watt keeps it about 80 at night so i just kept it at that.

    until i get my thermostat they are not staying the same temp i have to keep an eye on it it ranges from 92 to 97 if i notice the day is warm and the 75 can do it i just leave the 75 watt on i try to keep it around 92

    92 is the hottest it should be, during the day on the warm side. it should range between 87-92 on the warm side, and 77-82 on the cool side. hope this helps :)

    yes i know it is hard to maintain a certain temp with no thermostat as soon as i get it i can set it along with my timer and it will keep the temp i need. it was 47F here yesterday and 74 today so the temp depends on the weather but i am hoping once i get the thermostat i will be able to keep a consistent temp. :)

    i know it's hard to keep the temps sometimes. mine range between 89 and 92 throughout the day and night. and that's only with the UTH and the red bulbs. Sunshine doesn't have a white light. With her being an albino, the white light was too much for her, and she gets lots from the window close by. and from everything i've read and heard, leo's don't see the red so it's perfect for keeping on and viewing. ( tho it does make for interesting pics with no other lights and no flash. lol

    Looks great! Got all the necessities and the background is fun :)
    If you really want to go full on perfect a thermometer with a probe would be best - the air temp thermometers you have really aren't all that accurate and leos absorb their heat best through their bellies to aid digestion, so surface temperature is the best to be monitoring :)

    i don't see a moist box is there one? It's very important for a Leo to have a moist box for shedding all you need is some kind of container let's say a butter container then cut a hole on the side then fill fill with dirt and make sure to keep dirt moist
